A Raw Happy Thanksgiving Instead?

I haven't tried a raw Thanksgiving yet..but try your favorite raw recipes all together at Thanksgiving.

I would definitely do a raw pate, Alissa Cohen has recipes for raw meatloaf and gravy in her book "Living on Live Foods" Definitely raw cranberry lots of veggies,  fancy salad dishes like Bryan Au's Pad Thai? in his book "Raw in Ten Minutes", and a big mixed salad . I LOVE Michael Kenney books for the wow raw food factor. He has great photos to show you what the food will look like. Cafe Gratitude books are great too,  see the link to my favorite raw foods below.

You can take out books for free from your local library!

Frozen Pumpkin Pie (like pumpkin ice cream pie) from "Everyday Raw" by Matthew Kenney book

Raw Apple Pie -A great recipe can be found in "The Lupus Recovery Diet" by Jill Harrington

Guacamole, nuts, veggie, raw cheese dips veggie or flax chips

Forgive the lisp on this one...bad camera sound on my daughter's camera..
tip.. put the red pepper in first!

Fruit/figs/ stuffed figs
 Saw a great recipe recently that can be made with fresh or dried figs...

         Stuffed Figs (Lidia's Italy) as I went...Fill fresh or dried figs with chopped nuts, raw honey, cocoa powder, cinnamon (can leave chunky or probably would be great as a puree into a paste in a food processor too!)
